Job Tracking

Written October 17, 2019

To maximize productivity and minimize “bottle necks” in the activity areas listed previously, a technique known as job tracking has given production personnel the knowledge of where goods and services are at any moment and when they can expect these goods to be forwarded to the next activity.  Job tracking is a quick reference tool that may look something like the following model, however your specific production flow may require modification:

  1. Orders in preparation
  2. Order is prepared/components are together and waiting on press time
  3. Staging for next available press for subsequent printing
  4. Order is in production
  5. Finishing
  6. Staged in warehouse
  7. Order has been shipped
  8. Product on hold
